>> join us at 11:00 as well. buenos días temperaturas en widow terrorists. only on "today," a 17-year-old girl who suffered brutal injuries in this parasailing accident tells her story for the first time. and sneak peek. how do you like your david beckham? covered or uncovered? an exclusive first look at the super bowl ad that's letting you decide today, thursday, january
7:01 am
23rd, 2014. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. and welcome to "today" at 7:00 a.m. on the west coast on a thursday. i'm savannah guthrie. >> and i'm matt lauer alongside natalie morales and dylan dreyer in for al. 11 states including right here in new york, take a look at central park, 16 degrees at this hour. dylan's going to have more on the cold weather coming up. we'll also have the latest on some breaking news overnight. justin bieber has been arrested. police held a news conference just moments ago. we'll have more on that in a moment. we begin on a thursday morning with the olympic games. the opening events are just 14 days away now, and mounting security threats are becoming a growing concern for athletes, their families and spectators
7:02 am
alike. nbc's chief foreign correspondent, richard engel, is in sochi for us. richard, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. you can imagine what an agonizing choice this must be for many of these athletes, they've been training entire years for their families, this is the dream of a lifetime to see their sons and daughters compete. now they have to weigh the risks whether coming to sochi is worth it north. after years of dedication, competition and training, american athletes and their families are facing a choice they didn't expect. whether to go to the olympics in sochi or not. snowboarder sage's parents won't be joining him. terrorist threats were part of that decision. >> even if nothing happens, it's just having that concern just definitely limits you and makes you kind of freaked out the whole scene of the olympic vibe, you know.
7:03 am
>> reporter: bobsledder asia evans' mother is going but will keep her eyes peeled. >> i'm certainly going to be more focused on my surroundings. >> reporter: that's the same approach the parents of speed skater brian hansen are taking, not pulling out, but watching closely. >> kind of brought us all together as a team usa. we're really on top of it as families. >> our son's going. unless they cancel the olympics, we're going to be there. >> reporter: with anti-russian islamic militants threatening the games, what are they trying to protect in sochi? the olympic venues are spread out over two main sections. there's the coastal cluster on the black sea built around a tight circle are the stadiums for the opening ceremony, ice skating and hockey. nearby is the athletes village. the area is connected to a train station and airport. 30 miles away up a winding road is the mountain cluster where the skiing and sledding events are spread out over slopes and valleys.
7:04 am
and snowboarder sage doesn't expect he'll be venturing too far from the protected olympic venues. >> i'm just going to stick to myself and roll up into a little ball, do my event and just get out of there, i think. >> richard, are russian officials giving any updates on those terror suspects they are looking for, the ones we've seen pictures of who are thought perhaps to be in the sochi area? >> reporter: not really. and this is one of the tantalizing details or biggest risks that is still outstanding. there were initially six different suspected suicide bombers on the loose. one of them is believed to be dead. that would leave five different people who are somewhere in this country, one of them potentially in the sochi area, although perhaps not in this ring of steel all around the olympic venue. >> and richard, at the end of your piece we heard that athlete say he's going to roll up in the ball, he's going to compete and then get out of there. from what you've seen in sochi so far, are the russians going
7:05 am
to be able to deliver a safe olympic games and not completely impact the feel and the spirit of the olympics? >> reporter: that's a difficult challenge because they have to be safe, so in order to do that, when you hold the olympics right next to the north caucusses, you don't want it to feel like a prison camp. and right now it is very difficult to get in and out of this area. there are layers of checkpoints. there are patrols. not many restaurants or bars. you can't bring in outside liquids. it is not going to be the same kind of open, fun experience that people had in athens or london or at other games. >> yeah, we're talking about 40,000 security personnel, richard, police, military, intelligence. are they everywhere you look? >> reporter: right now, they are on patrol, but you don't see them everywhere.
7:06 am
a lot of these people are plainclothes. a lot of the surveillance is being done surreptitiously and covertly. russia consciously said they don't want it to feel like a militarized presence. but you certainly see them when you go through the checkpoints. you certainly see them as you try and enter and leave this olympic park. >> richard engel in sochi for us this morning. richard, thanks so much, as always. >> he wanted to have that feeling that the olympics have but safety is obviously the top priority. >> no question. let's turn to natalie. we are learning more about the arrest of justin bieber. >> that's right. new and serious trouble this morning for the pop star, justin bieber. he's been arrested in miami beach, accused of driving under the influence, drag racing and arrest resisting arrest. in a fuse conference, police say bieber acknowledged smoking pot and drinking beer. >> reporter: police say justin bieber was arrested and taken into custody in miami beach early thursday morning for allegedly driving under the influence and drag racing. he was reportedly driving a
7:07 am
rented lamborghini. bieber has been posting photos and videos of his time in the miami area and has been spotted in different places around town the past few days including a miami beach skate park. the arrest is the latest brush with the law for the 19-year-old star. a neighbor in his los angeles neighborhood accused the singer of causing thousands of dollars of damage by throwing eggs at his home. police raided his home, taking evidence, but no charges were filed. and right now i believe we are looking at some live pictures of justin bieber a short while ago when he was taken into custody earlier this morning. we're going to have much more on this story throughout the morning. mean while, a big development is expected today regarding the future of the government's secret spying programs. a government task force is expected to recommend that the national security agency stop collecting americans' phone records. the privacy and civil liberties oversight board will also say
7:08 am
the government should purge its huge database. in a speech last week, president obama laid out reforms but stopped short of getting rid of those programs. the violence has gotten even worse in the ukraine overnight as opposition leaders issued an ultimatum to the government. protesters burned barricades in kiev. demonstrators want ukraine's president to call early elections within 24 hours or face more popular rage. demonstrations began in november over the government's decision not to sign a trade deal with the european union. five people are under arrest this morning in connection with an infamous heist three decades ago. the arrests came after the search of the home of a former mobster who inspired robert deniro's character in the movie "goodfellas." those arrested included crime captains being charged in connection with a nearly $6 million heist at kennedy airport. at least one american is among dozens of suspects arrested after police in australia say they grobe up a
7:09 am
major global money laundering ring. australian officials say they seized more than a half billion dollars in drugs, cash and other assets. they say the money was generated by drug smugglers, human traffickers and outlaw motorcycle gangs. firefighters spent all night at the scene of a massive five-alarm fire at a condo complex in dallas. take a look. the fire broke out early wednesday night. it burned for several hours, spreading from one building to the next. the complex was undergoing renovations and was believed to be unoccupied. the cause of the fire is under investigation. and in mississippi, a spectacular explosion there all caught on camera. this happened at a biodiesel facility that converts chicken fat to alternative fuel. this is just one of several explosions. the blasts were felt for miles away, and the flames knocked out electricity in the area. firefighters couldn't get close, so they just let the fire burn out. fortunately nobody was injured. love won't keep them together after all. "people" is reporting that the
7:10 am
captain & tennille are getting divorced. captain darrell dragon and toni tennille have been married for 39 years. they had a string of hits and their own variety show back in the 1970s. they have no children. a minnesota family brings a piece of the winter olympics a little bit closer to home. check this out. take a look. tim smith and his family taking full advantage of all the snow they've been getting this winter there in minnesota. he built this mini-luge track inspired, of course, by next month's winter games in sochi. as you probably guessed, the smith house, very, very popular with all the neighbors and the kids. i'd like to go over there and go down that luge. that looks like fun. >> i'm impressed with that. very cool. >> my dad used to build a slope like that in front of our house, but the end went right into the street. >> probably not the way to do it. >> well, whatever ice luge you have in your backyard, we are certainly going to see them stick around for a while. the cold air is all across the northeast,ed midwest, even down south, and it is not going
7:11 am
anywhere any time soon. but on the flip side of that, we have much warmer temperatures out west. so we're going from temps with windchills well down below zero to the heat and the very dry conditions in the southwest with high pressure still in control. temperatures up and down california still breaking records. we should be in the 70s and 80s. >> we're seeing mostly clear skies, 40s and 50s right now. notice around emeryville the camera bouncing around. those are the winds picking up around the east bay hills.
7:12 am
high of 67 today. around the rest of the bay area upper 60s to near 70 in san jose, upper 60s to mid-60s closer to san francisco. close to 70 again, those would break records. close to that again for santa rosa, oakland near 70. low 70s around the tri-valley. temperatures warmer, no sign of rain as we head into next week. a última información en >> dylan, thank you so much. well, now to an overnight arrest tied to a major case of hacking. you probably remember it targeted some of this country's most prominent political figures. michelle kosinski is in london with the latest on this. >> reporter: hi, savannah. this is the hacker who allegedly got ahold of some of george w. bush's e-mails and published those interesting paintings he had had done. this hacker's goal for years, it seems, was not to steal bank account information or anything like that, but just to embarrass people. >> reporter: a high-tech hacker called guchifer was arrested in
7:13 am
a 1,000-year-old town in romania identified with the help of u.s. authorities. he is suspected of hacking into the e-mails of george w. bush and family members, then distributing paintings by the former president including those revealing self-portraits. >> is that second on your credit, president of the united states, painter? on your resume? >> it depends whether you like the painting or not. >> reporter: he apparently managed to get bush family phone numbers and e-mails, hacked into the account of a close friend of hillary clinton, and accessed very personal e-mails between colin powell and a romanian politician alleging the two were having an affair which powell denied. she called powell the love of her life in the notes. among the others, guccifer bragged he had hacked steve martin, creator of "downton abbey," a former secretary of the u.s. air force. how is this possible? >> when it comes to e-mail, it's extremely easy to break into accounts. it's ridiculous. you have a login and you have a password.
7:14 am
and in many cases you're talking about individuals who aren't technically savvy. so even though there's a lot of security around a lot of things they do, when it comes to their e-mail, it's pretty basic. >> reporter: guccifer now under tight security in a romanian jail. experts say it really is hit or miss, trying passwords that some of these hackers use to gain access. and when you're a public figure, it's much easier to get the info that would be used in security questions like what's your mother's middle name? back to you guys. >> all right. friendly reminder, don't make your password password. public service announcement. in other news, the widow of a man who was shot and killed inside a florida movie earlier this month is now speaking publicly for the first time. this as the alleged shooter's attorneys fight for his release on bond. here's nbc's gabe gutierrez. >> reporter: for nicole olsen, a rare movie date turned tragic. >> blink of an eye, my whole world just got shattered into a million pieces. and now i'm left trying to pick
7:15 am
them up and put them all back together. and it's so hard. and it's so unbearable. >> reporter: olsen and her husband, chad, a navy veteran, were in a tampa movie theater earlier this month. as parents of a 22-year-old daughter, they treasured these moments. >> me and my husband didn't get a date night very often, much less a whole day to spend together. so i was just so excited and looking forward to spending a day with the love of my life. >> reporter: during the previews her husband texted the couple's baby-sitter, and that's when police say an argument started with another moviegoer who got upset over the texting. the dispute escalated. and then gunfire. >> right now i'm just still trying to recover from the shots. >> reporter: curtis reeves, a. 71-year-old retired police captain is being held without bail. >> everyone with a cell phone is at risk. i mean, you never know when this guy is going to go off again. >> reporter: he also worked as security director at busch
7:16 am
gardens and served as president of his local crimestoppers program. in court, his attorney has said he was defending himself. according to an arrest affidavit, chad olsen had thrown popcorn at reeves, and reeves said he feared being attacked. he's due back in court next month. >> it's just unimaginable. >> reporter: nicole olsen is recovering from a bullet that hit her hand and the loss she never expected on a date with her husband. for "today," gabe gutierrez, nbc news, atlanta. >> well, we'll shift gears now. never expected on a date. >> the super bowl between the broncos and seahawks is in two weeks. on wednesday sherman faced the media given. >> reporter: if we are just talking statistics, the seahawks are lucky to have sherman.
7:17 am
butch his comments after clinching a berth in the super bowl have made him a rising topic off the field. and now sherman himself is speaking out. >> if i would have really known it was going to blow up like that, i probably would have approached it differently. >> and the seahawks are going to the super bowl. >> what blew up was sherman's temper, unleashed minutes after the seahawks won the championship game. the play he's talking about, this one, a game saver, when here blocked a pass intended for 49ers receiver michael crabtree. >> picked off! >> that ended the game. sherman said he tried to shake crabtree's hand and was pushed away. sherman now apologizes for the comments and said he got caught up in the moment. the 25-year-old football star
7:18 am
went on to compare his style to mohamed ali and deion sanders. both well known athletes and trash talkers. but it's the word used by sherman's critics that are getting a lot of attention. some calling him a villain. >> i don't think i'm a villain. >> others calling him a thug, which he says he takes offense to. >> the only reason it bothers me is because it seems like it's the acceptable way of calling someone the "n" word. >> he says he's learned a lesson but on the field, doesn't expect him to chang. . >> i can only be myself. >> a mic on him did have him saying "hell of a game, hell of a game" before getting shoved in the face.
7:19 am
so apparently there are two sides to the story after all. >> jenna wolfe,thank you very much. >> we have a pretty heart warming story today. this is dorothy who in 1996 had a brain tumor. she lost the ability to speak and she started jotting down random letters. she passed away and her granddaughter posted theseline and 13 minutes later they cracked the code and let's figure out exactly what dorothy was doing. this is the lord's prayer. she was writing prayers and
7:20 am
songs. we talked to the family this morning and they're thrilled to know that's exactly what it was. 13 minutes. so it got us thinking about our own code, and i have right here -- let me get my phone. this is a song, these are the letters. i'm going to post this to our facebook page right now. i'm going to take a picture it have. you can go to our facebook page and try and crack our code. isn't that a nice story, though? >> that's a great story. >> it takes my breath away. >> she was praying the whole time. >> dylan has cracked the code. >> can you give us a hint? >> coming up, only on "today," a 17-year-old girl who suffered brutal injuries in this parasailing accident tells her story for the first time. >> and a dangerous concoction

8:48 am
money that you've already paid the taxes on in and you don't have to pay taxes again when you full them out. it they're particularly good for young people or anybody who thinks their tax rate is going to be higher in the future. so you can split your contributions, some in traditional, some in roth. >> what you're seeing a lot of is larger companies are offering their employees professional financial advice. do you reck that employees take the advice of the company that work for? >> it's not the company that you work for it's often the company that is your retirement plan provider or a third party company. your company can't give you this advice. yes. i think this is a great idea. research has shown that people who take the advice actually do better. to if you feel like you're speaking a foreign language when it comes to your money, this is a great move. >> jean chatzky thank you very much. keep the questions coming. jean is going to stick around and answer more in the orange room. meanwhile up next we're
